As the 1950s closed, Mickey Mantle had met, if not exceeded the lofty expectations placed on his shoulders upon replacing Joe DiMaggio. Graded 60 EX 5 by SGC, the Yankees slugger projects an air of confidence on this oversized 1959 Bazooka Baseball card. Being that these sizable slabs of cardboard were issued on the backs of bubble gum boxes, surviving copies are typically found in deplorable condition. Not the case with this "Mick"! This neatly extracted example is quite attractive with crisp corners, clean edges and immediately discernible guidelines along the left and right edges. The stadium themed obverse is colorful with a clean, blank reverse.
